The design artfully arranges a number of special pieces of timbers into a petite table that exudes an overabundance of charm…
The entire table has been fashioned from highly figured black cherry (Prunus serotina) including the plank top, legs, spreaders and longitudinal under-shelf. Properly aged, crafted and finished black cherry timber rivals any other wood in the world for its stability, durability, pattern and deep patina that will develop over time. Each piece of timber has been carefully selected to compliment the design as well as the unique character of the other pieces.
The top and lower shelf exhibit a charming sapwood-to-heartwood transition further highlighted by the hand-beveled edge. The book-matched table legs have been hand-tapered on the two inner sides to compliment the fine lines of the table while adding a feeling that the table is balancing on its toes.
The success of the design depends upon precise joinery for attachment of the various pieces to form a sturdy piece that will stand the test of time. Traditional hand-cut blind mortise-and-tenon joints (Japanese jigoku-kusabi joinery technique) have been used for permanent attachment of the legs, spreaders and lower shelf.
The table has been hand finished with durable teak oil to highlight the natural color and protect the beautiful character of the cherry timbers while giving the table a warm feeling to the touch.
